My Route

I finally finished planning my route across America. It was kinda tough with only the two end points to work with and having to go over every mile to make sure the road seemed safe to run on. But Google maps was extremely helpful and now I’m finished! There may be some minor changes from here on out, but this is a rough idea of my route. Below I listed all major (or minor) cities that I’ll run through or near and the day that I’ll be there. I haven’t decided on a schedule or starting date yet, so the days aren’t specific but that will all be worked out later. At this time if anyone lives in or knows someone in these cities who would like to run with me let me know and we can start coordinating that. Also, If you want a more detailed picture of a specific day let me know and I can hook you up.

    I love that you’re doing this and I was even more excited to see that you’re running through Kingman, AZ! I live in Kingman and I’d love to cheer you on! Where in town will you be running and around what time do you think you will be running through?

      I should be there Tuesday and Wednesday of next week! I’m planning on finishing off Tuesday on Beale and Andy devine which would be around 1 or 2 and then leaving Wednesday morning on Andy devine around 6:30 or 7. I’d love to see you out there!

        Actually, I’m a bit ahead of schedule now so i think I’m gonna push on the next few days and get there a day earlier than i had planned so move everything I said up by 24 hours.

    This is awesome. I have been watching this movie for years and can quote every word.. Also being a runner, this just is perfect. Too bad I’m in Wisconsin and not an amazing runner like you, but hope it all goes well! How awesome!

    That’s awesome! But, no Grandfather Mountain in NC?

    This is a great way to spread the word – I met someone while I was in Banff that ran across Canada to raise awareness/funds for physical education for children – amazing accomplishment – be safe and best of luck on your journey – you will affect change in many ways!
